I don’t know how
Yes, you do
No, I don’t
Why do you do that?
I haven’t given up
It’s just that it’s hard
Not if you want it bad enough
Do you remember when you first started to talk?
Huh? What does that have to do with this?
Just answer the question.
Um, my mom said that I would never stop talking because I had so much to say… and that I loved to sing.
So, why did you stop?
Stop what? Talking so much? I grew up, I guess.
Well, that’s your problem then.
Huh? You’re not making sense.
You stopped. No one told you too. It was your choice.
Just like now.
So, what do I do then?
You lost your voice…you have to find it again.
I don’t know what my voice is anymore
Then make a new one
A new one?
You’re not that little girl anymore, so give yourself a new voice.
Can you do that?
I think so…
Yeah, I can do that
Oh, just one more thing…
Don’t forget to sing.
